Greatest Hits and What You Missed: Shrimp and Grits, Root Beer and Ice Cream, Hot Dogs and Beer, and 10 Chefs On Why You Can’t Grill For S#!t

That picture above (of the shrimp grits at Relish) was my favorite snap of the week–the kind of thing that made me want to immediately get in the car, head out to West Oak Lane and eat seven or eight bowls of it. My favorite story? The one about Victory Brewing finally bottling their artisan root beer (perfect for bourbon-spiked root beer floats) and selling their own beer-inspired ice cream. The best deal of the past week? Daniel Stern losing his mind and almost giving away Smokehouse Dogs and pints of Narragansett Lager at MidAtlantic. And the most useful thing we came up with? Grilling advice from 10 of the best chefs in the city (including Daniel Stern, who may be nuts but does know a thing or two about working a grill).

And you know what? That wasn’t even half of what we had going on this week on Foobooz. Here’s some of the other good stuff you might’ve missed:

Gemelli Opens In Manayunk And yeah, we’ve got the menu and the pictures
Ex-Horizons Owners Promise to Make Vegetables Sexy Frankly, I already find kale quite alluring
A. Kitchen Opens the Doors And yeah, we’ve got the menu and the pictures
Should Servers Get Paid Sick Days? Or would you rather them just sneeze right on your food?

Happy 4th of July, everyone. See you all back here on Tuesday.
